This is a traditional "country" dish. Sugar is optional, but I think it's better with it. Try this for breakfast with fried potatoes. This recipe came from "The Little House Cookbook" by Barbara M Walker, and the food featured in "Farm Boy."
These do contain potato, but they don't contain coconut! I made this for Saint Patrick's Day with my class years ago when I was in third grade. Later, right before I graduated from high school, I tracked down my former teacher and got her to give me this recipe. It's easy and fun for kids, and making them was such a wonderful memory for me.
Vegetables are roasted, dressed with a sweet ginger sauce, and then returned to the oven to let it caramelize. This would be ideal as a side dish or as a vegetarian main dish when served over Yorkshire puddings (just be sure to not use animal fat!). Serves 2 as a main course and 4 as a side dish.
If you've never tried something rose flavored before, do give this a taste. Make sure you use roses that have been grown without pesticides. I always used ones that I grew at home because I knew how they had been treated. Cooking time includes refrigeration.
This is a chocolate cake which comes from Metz in France. I was given the recipe when I lived in France from a friend from there, but I have admittedly never tried making it myself. He made it for me often, though, and it is very good. We would eat it with single cream drizzled over it.
Apple pandowdy is a bit like an apple pie but with fluffy cake on top. When I was growing up, we had an apple tree in the back yard. The apples were too tart to eat raw, but they were delicious in baked desserts. This is the first one I ever made on my own. You can substitute molasses for brown sugar like I normally do, and I use vanilla paste instead of vanilla extract. You can also omit the bourbon, if desired.
The Mayor of Lock Haven (Pennsylvania) made me this for my birthday one year, so I had to get the recipe from him. It's best served warm, and it has a streusel topping. Serve it with my vanilla sauce recipe: (#212142).
